Scott Pilgrim Versus XBox Live

I keep trying to write up a decent review of the Scott Pilgrim game, but every time I try I slip into a sort of malaise. So instead I'll just say that it's a really good beat 'em up, especially for $10. In terms of gameplay it's the bastard love-child of Sengoku 3 and River City Ransom. Visually, it's like playing a Paul Robertson movie. If I have any complaints, it's a bit grindier than I'd like, but I think that comes with the River City Ransom thing. Also there was a reference to Crash 'n The Boys, so I'm obligated to like the game.

EDIT: This picture is one of the least fucked up things on Paul's site. Now imagine a 12 minute video.

I Shouldn't Do This...

I know I'm supposed to be posting about XBox 360 games, not bitching about PS3 games. But I couldn't pass this up.
